Noiseworks shot to mainstream fame in 1986 with their debut single “No Lies”, which instantly became an ARIA top 20 hit. Quickly following were chart anthems “Take me Back”, “Love Somebody”, “Welcome to the world”, and “Burning Feeling”, all spawned from their debut album “Noiseworks”, which charted for over a year and basked in multiple platinum sales.
The band slogged it out on the road throughout Australia, playing to packed pubs everywhere they could, as well as supporting acts such as Bon Jovi, Paul Young and Jimmy Barnes. Following the success of “Noiseworks”, the album “Touch” was released to an anxious public in November 1988. The album entered straight into the top 10 on the ARIA charts, and remained in the charts for well into the following year.
Noiseworks still carry a large following today. Noiseworks’ shows were always known to be some of the best that Australian live rock could nurture.
